I recently shot an advertorial for Marc Jacobs “Daisy Eau So Fresh”Limited Perfumes Collection for L’Officiel Middle East May Issue. Since the Daisy perfume collection were to be the dominant feature we had to show it in all the visuals, stronger the better they say! The Daisy fragrances have a light fruity and summery feel to them, perfect for Dubai summer heat, exactly what the name says.

My favorite of the Daisy collection

After our meeting with our client, HAVAS PR ME, Chalhoub Group, we decide to shoot at my home. The weather was still very pleasant and we had the bonus of having a huge Banyan tree for shade. I was privilege to have a great team who worked with me on this shoot. Our lovely art director for L’Officiel Magazine, Samar Sadik, Ieva Nemciauskaite, who was responsible for hair, the Bourjois team who was responsible for makeup, the talented Sleiman Dayaa responsible for the styling and the adorable Eva from Bareface Models.

Lighting consisted of mainly natural light as well as a Profoto ringflash with a Profoto B3 battery kit.

Here are some behind the scenes photos from the shoot.
